He doesn’t care

In regards to letters by Alan Cohick and Charles Ardell in the August 18 edition, I have to say that Donald Trump does not care about you. He does not care about me. He cares about Donald Trump. Why would anyone worth Billions of dollars strive for a very stressful job that only pays $600,000 a ...

Be fair

I read the news about Williamsport Mayor Gabe Campana and I could not believe it. His wife put a Protection From Abuse order on him, but he is not yet convicted. Still, people are acting as if he is guilty even though he has not gone to court.Campana is a man of God, and he would not do ...

Forgotten

I am sick and tired of our government telling us that we should be politically correct toward these so-called minorities.They go out and burn down and steal other people's properties, whenever they don't get their way. Has anybody noticed that the so-called minorities have up to 65% of the TV ...

Slightly misleading

A recent AP article contained in the Sun-Gazette had as its headline, "Skydiver becomes first to jump and land without chute." Luke Aikins accomplished something extremely dangerous. He challenged himself and succeeded. No one can take that away from him. He may have been the first "skydiver" ...

Liar, Liar

They say state Attorney General Katherine Kane lied under oath. Well, the woman who is running for our president did lie and they do nothing about it, but Kane is convicted. My God, what is wrong with our system?I would not vote for Hillary Clinton if my life depended on it. She lies and lies ...

Politics in America

I was born two months after the start of the Great Depression so I remember a lot of hardships and different political events our great Country has endured. Born in a family of Democrats, I was by birth and teaching a Democrat for many years.The Democratic Party years ago was really the party ...

Will They Come?

I have followed with interest the issue of building a new terminal at the local airport and comments about whether it will increase traffic. I've also heard people say that a second commuter service won't come here due to lack of traffic. I flew American Airlines and their local commuter ...

Be aware of psoriasis

August is Psoriasis Awareness Month. Psoriasis makes the skin cells grow five times faster than normal which cause a build up of old cells instead of the old cells falling off. Signs are red patches of skin, small scaling spots, dry and crackling skin, itching, burning or soreness, thickened, ...

More cult than party

Donald Trump is not a Russian spy, and his wife is not an illegal immigrant. The next thing you liberals will be saying the Trumps come down from Mars to take over the country. Tim Mannello went so far as to say Hillary is one of the most honest politicians.The Democratic party is more like a ...

‘I was robbed’

In every election since 1992, the Democratic Party's nominee has defeated the Republican Party's nominee in Pennsylvania's presidential election. In 1992, Bill Clinton defeated George Walker Bush by 9 percentage points.. In 1996, Bill Clinton defeated Bob Dole by 5.6 percentage points. In 2000, ...

Tax sale

Today's newspaper has a listing of approximately 392 properties that might be sold for unpaid taxes.I believe that it is only fair that if the Sun Gazette prints this type of list then it should also print a list and description of all tax-exempt properties in our county.I would guess that ...

Bad for landlords

n Europe, people stay in the same homes for years they fix them up, plant flowers have pride. Here in Williamsport they move like Gypsies. The Williamsport Water Authority policy condones moving. If they would have to factor in paying your previous bill in the cost of your move it would not ...

Keep it private

I read about Mayor Campana's wife filing for a PFA order, and then, much to my disgust, the very personal details, which are the business of no one other than the mayor and his wife. These details scream sensationalism, and the media is increasingly guilty of this kind of reporting, local or ...

Foreclosure prevention

As a non-profit Housing Counselor I would like readers to be aware of two new programs release by The Federal Housing Finance Agency for borrowers that may have their mortgage underwritten by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. There are over 1,100 borrowers in Pennsylvania that have been deemed ...

Throwing tax money away

Once again there is another article about local County government spending more tax money on the airport terminal.As one of the "Soon to be Dead", i.e. Senior Citizen, I have time to travel and since last September I have been to India, Bolivia, Mexico, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Peru.I ...

Are Republicans hypocrites?

]It seems that some Republicans are going against Donald Trump because he calls life the way he sees it.Are these politicians not happy with Trump because they cannot control him? Is he wrong for not going along with these type of politicians and not watch what he says and how he says it?In ...

What city needs

This election season has been an educational experience for American voters, who've learned that on the national level our democracy is highly imperfect, and not nearly as representative as we'd like. But what about closer to home, right here in the City of Williamsport?The Commonwealth of ...

Evangelicals and Trump

No matter who's running for president, Evangelical Christians always seem to have a problem fully supporting the candidate.As Christians, we want to see the world prosper. We want everyone to find the peace that can only be found by a relationship with Jesus Christ. We also want our country to ...

Not sustainable

After reading the letter from Dr. David Keller, referring to the Williamsport Area School District that appeared in the Aug 14 Sun Gazette, I would like to reflect upon it.I believe that I am qualified to do so having served on the district school board for eight years four as board ...

Prioritize levy

On Page 1 of the Wednesday Sun-Gazette there were two articles right next to each other. The first article reported that the City of Williamsport will need $8.6 million to re-certify the levee system. The second article reported that Lycoming County may spend $2 million for water and sewer in ...
